Parent on Solihull school intruder: 'Like we haven't enough to worry about now'

PARENTS have expressed their concerns after two borough schools were reportedly targeted by an intruder this week.

An email to parents is reported on social media to have been distributed by Fordbridge Community Primary School and another school.

The email to parents posted on Facebook reads:

‘Dear Parents,

Unfortunately two Solihull schools have had an incident this week with somebody on site. The incidents involved a single man attempting to access school grounds. The CCTV images suggest that this was a male, average height and build with a beard and wearing a light coloured t-shirt and a darker coloured coat.

May we ask that you all act vigilant at this time.’

One parent at Fordbridge commented on the post: “Had a letter yesterday saying someone had got onto school grounds but not entered the building.”

Another added: “Like we haven’t got enough to worry about at the moment.”

Solihull Observer has sought responses from Solihull Borough Council and the two schools.

Fordbridge Community Primary School responded by saying it was for the council to comment.

A Solihull Borough Council spokesperson told us internet reports naming the school as Valley Primary School are incorrect.
